Hurricane Sally: Large-scale crocodile captured swimming in Alabama storm


Hurricane Sally appears to have been brought on by more than just fierce winds, floods and dangerous storms.

Alabama resident Tina Bennett on Wednesday captured video of a giant crocodile floating in the water outside her Gulf Shores home.

“Oh my God, it’s outside our window!” Bennett praised in a video posted on Twitter by WKRG-TV meteorologist Thomas Gayboy. “It’s a 10 or 12-foot crocodile!”

Geboy noted that large-scale reptiles were another reason for harboring in the place until the drainage of floodwaters occurred.

“Not only are the power lines going down, but also wildlife is displaced,” he wrote.

In addition to the garter, an eel was also caught floating on the side of a highway in Orange Beach, Ala., Later in the day, according to Birmingham’s WVTM-TV reporter, Brittany Decker.

“Just a normal Wednesday in 2020,” the station wrote.

Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores at 4:45 pm CDT as a Category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

Sally brought measured rain to the feet, killed at least one person, and forced hundreds to save her. At least eight waterways in South Alabama and Florida Pondale were expected to have major flooding levels by Thursday.

The National Weather Service warned that records of some forests, submerged bridges and floods could shatter homes.

In Orange Beach, at least 50 people were rescued and sheltered from flooded homes, Mayor Tony Kennan said.

“We’ve got some people that we haven’t been able to meet just because the water is so high,” Kennon said. “But they are safe in their homes. We’ll save them as soon as the water returns. ”
